The strange bonus system

Post by Yomar »

Sometime I notice things, that I never noticed before.
Yesterday I noticed that the arcer during day does always 5 dammage, even with leadership support, I guess it depends how numbers are rounded down, Idk in how many situations things like this happen, because I don't remember right now.
It's a bit disappointing when you have an unit with leaderhip and your units don't do more dammage.
Now I will have some fun testing the various units with leadership and see how much dammage increases or not on enemies with resistances.

numbers are not only rounded down but also rounded up.
the thing with leadership is that it gives a bonus of 25% per difference in level.

so a lv2 leader grants 25% to lv1 units, but 0% to lv2 units. (and 50% to lv0 units).
this bounus stacks with the time of day bonus.

the only archer i know that does 5 damage during day is the elven archer, which always does 5 damage because it is neutral.
the leadership of a lv2 unit would boost it to 6.
if you get no bonus, you probably used a lv1 leader (sergeant?)

basically you can calculate attack boni like this:

a 25% bonus gives 1 extra damage for every 4 points. (50% give 1 for every 2.)

that means that units with a base attack of 3 or lower are unaffected, 4-7 get 1, 8-11 get 2 and 12-15 get 3.
the highest bonus you can get is a lancer (charge attack 100%) with leadership of a fire dragon (lv5 100%) during day (25%) for a total of 225% damage.
may the source be with you

Sorry I forgot to write that this applies only against the Dwarvish guardsman.
The Elvish archer (Base damage 6 thx to dexterity bonus) his dammage from 4 to 5 with leadership support (or it goes from 3 to 4 if there is no dexterity bonus), but the Loyalist bowman damage on day is 5 (base dam. 7) and even with lv2 leadership support of Lieutenant it stays the same.

Dwarvish guardsman has something called "steadfast" which doubles his resistances on defense. That's what's messing up the calculation.
